How to enable the new Facebook Timeline

You’ve been hearing about all the wonderful new Facebook features, and like us, you’re probably super-eager to get started with them.

If you’re willing to go through a series of eight steps, you can get into the brand-new Facebook Timeline right now.

First, you’ll need to go to the Facebook developer page, which is a part of your Facebook account. Make sure you’re logged into your Facebook account, and then simply follow this link to get started.

1. When you get there, click “allow.”

2. Click “create new app”

3. Name it whatever you want, and give it whatever namespace you’d like — it doesn’t matter. Click the checkbox “I agree to the platform privacy policy.” And then click Continue, pass the security check by filling in the Captcha, and you’ll be ready for the next step.

4. After you’ve verified yourself as a human, you’ll reach this screen, where you’ll need to click “Open Graph” on the left side.

5. You’ll see the next screen, entitled “Get Started with Open Graph” — fill in anything you want (it doesn’t matter) in those fields under the heading “start by defining one action than one object for your app.” Click Get Started.

6. On this screen, do nothing except scroll to the bottom and click “Save Changes and Next.” Do the same thing on the next screen.

7. You’ll be taken to this screen. Wait a few minutes, and then go to your Facebook homepage. That’s where you’ll be invited to enable Timeline. Be patient at this point — sometimes it requires you to wait before the changes take effect.

When you go back to your Facebook homepage, you’ll see this. Success! Click Get It Now, and you’re in!


Linux a threat to Microsoft? No way!

Recently, Microsoft made a minor change in their list of competitors by quietly discounting Linux as a major threat to their empire. It wasn’t a conspicuous change though, as only about 2 or 3 million users out of the 20 million Linux users managed to notice it. Out of those 2 million, only a few hundred users who weren’t in such a good mood that day managed to give a damn about it. What’s more, some Linuxians felt quite happy about Microsoft finally acknowledging the fact that Linux was never a threat; a powerful kick up the backside maybe, but threat? No way!


Over the years, Microsoft has made numerous attempts to thwart the growth of Linux and the open source culture in general and now after about 20 years of intense battle, Redmond has emerged victorious. How can Linux ever be a threat to Microsoft? Their Windows Operating System runs more than 90% of the desktops worldwide and Linux just 1-2%. Not even close. And so what if 100% of the top 10 supercomputers in the world are running Linux? They still have more than 90% desktop users. And what if that blasted Android runs half of the phones worldwide? They still have 90% destktop share, they’re still no 1. Hey and don’t start bragging about the 60% market share Linux has on the server front. They’re still the kings of the desktop; still ruling the world. From NASA to Wall Street, from Facebook to Google, Linux is everywhere, but Microsoft, they’re still obsessed about their desktop dominance. Time to wake up little puppy.
